Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a very enjoyable sipping rum. The flavour has complexity, though I must agree with other reviewers: the bourbon casks haven't left much elbow room for the subtler, tropical rum flavours. In fact, I'm planning to get some of my Jack Daniels-drinking friends to taste this stuff blind, tell them it's Tennessee whiskey, and see whether they smell a rat. Having said that, the bottle doesn't seem to be lasting all that long, which always seems to happen with Plantation rums in my cabinet...
This is the new version of the Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala available since 2015. Matured in casks for 3 years in Guatemala, and finished in ex-cognac caks in France. Vanilla is very present with almond, marzipan and honey. Well balanced with cocoa, woody vanilla notes. Elegant finish.
Whooohoo, for that little bit of money my heart skips a beat every time I open that bottle to take a long shot sided with coconut fudge.
Good for "Everyday Rum".
It's a very typical rum and reasonable price.
No alcohol burn.
It is a not special rum, but it has no weakness for me.
Weich, fruchtig mit moderater Süße. Warm und leicht alkoholisch auf der Zunge. Rund im Abgang.
Zu wenig definiert, etwas scharf. OK, aber kein Highlight.
Beautiful aroma, very smooth taste, not burning. Vanilla is very present with almond
good, xaymaca is better if I compare them, but this one still good.
I like to sip this one while enjoying Family evenings at home. Good value for the money. It's half the price of the 20th anniversity xo, but that doesn't go for the taste. I would buy this one again.
Pas mauvais du tout avec des notes d'amandes. Pas mal équilibré
Found a bottle with only 1.5 ounces remaining; added 1/4 ounce of water, no ice and surprise, surprise, it was delicious; one of the most enjoyable rums I've tasted. This brand "Plantation" is going to be very confusing as they produce rum from so many Islands in the Caribbean.
Pár korun navíc oproti prvním modelům a vypadá to úplne jinak. Nejsou už tolik cítit lihové tóny jako u Grand Reserve a není ani tak sladce karamelový jako Black Cask. Vůně podstatně zkrocená. Chut z prvu nasládlá. Po chvíli převalování schne. Když vezmu že flaška vyjde na 600kč rozhodně 8+ takže 9b.
Color : gold
Wood, soft spices, round taste.
Good quality for a good price
I like this one quite a bit. Typical Plantation taste and affordable. Sweet, but not too sweet. Ik think this would be enjoyable for most people. Also if you are not a rum drinker.
Caramel, sweet with a finish loaded with spices. Nutmeg, cloves, anise. Not my cup of tea because of the spices.
Rhum fruité avec du corps. Belle structure. Mériterait un peu plus de rondeur.
Cладкий, но до десертного не дотягивающий, пряный, с мягким терпким дубом, в аромате слабоват, но вкус компенсирует. 8/10
Sweet, but not sweet to the dessert, spicy, with a soft tart oak, weak in flavor, but the taste compensates.
J'en garde un bon souvenir, toujours un cran en dessous d'un Zafra 21 ou du Plantation 20th Anniversary, mais on est dans une gamme de prix beaucoup plus modeste.
Good rum with fine taste for the very good price. Not the best but certainly not the worst
This rum was not expensive at around £35, which I think is pretty good value for money.
The aroma and initial taste is cognac and oak, which makes sense given the way it is made.
It is pretty smooth, with no more alcohol burn than many rums with a larger pricetag.
There are lovely light caramel notes which segue nicely into a very subtle organic, almost earthy finish, but it doesn't last long.
There is sweetness to this rum ... not as much as Diplomatico (is anything? LOL!) but more than an aged Appleton's. For me, the sweetness is perfect for something you can drink a few glasses of.
I think I will be looking to get some more of the Plantaion label.
Got this as christmas gift. Really loved the taste. And also appreciates that there are no harsh burning in the throat after drinking it. Truly great rum!
Good and enjoyable rum. Smooth in it's own way. The one you open on that not so special day.
Beautiful aroma, very smooth taste, not burning. Long aftertaste with vanilla tones.
Enjoyable partner for long evenings.
